IPR or Interproximal reduction of the enamel is a popular orthodontic procedure. If the patient's teeth are too crowded and there is not enough space in order to accurately straighten the teeth then the IPR procedure should be applied. IPR is a very common method that helps adult patients to straighten their teeth. The most important thing to remember while conducting the interproximal reduction procedure is the patient's enamel safety. If the procedure is illy performed it can irreversibly damage the enamel and cause a lot of difficulties for the patient. That is why you need only the best and most importantly precise and delicate instruments to make everything perfect.
Proxycut and Proxystrip from DSI were designed with modern dentistry needs in mind. Unlike rotary instruments, such as IPR discs, these thin, delicate strips provide a much gentler interproximal reduction without risking damage to the patient's soft tissue and gums. They are best applied manually, allowing practitioners to delicately remove only the right amount of enamel with a tactile feel for filigree precision.
Both DSI Proxistrip and DSI Proxicut come with different types of abrasive corrugated surface strips for cleaning the interdental space and polishing the teeth surface. DSI ProxiStrip System also includes a long handle that gives you the option to get to hard-to-reach areas and difficult angles. It also gives the ability to operate at a 90° angle, which greatly reduces the chair time. There is no other system equipped with such a device. DSI Proxistrip and DSI Proxicut are ideal for performing interproximal reduction in a safe, predictable, and reliable way.
Both DSI Proxistrip and DSI Proxicut are innovative, accurate strip systems designed to achieve perfect proximal contact adjustment and complete marginal seating of crowns, veneers, inlays/onlays, and proximal contouring of composite fillings accurately with minimal time and effort. These Systems make interproximal reduction completely safe and accurate without creating sharp corners or subgingival ledges. Both are designed for orthodontic treatments. These flexible strips curve and conform to the natural contours of the teeth to maximize patient comfort and safety.
